Golfers in Wodonga were treated to a surprise on Saturday morning when two visiting Skywhales landed on the course.
The hot air balloons were scheduled to land at Wodonga's Birallee Park after taking off from Lavington, but didn't quite make it.
One landed on the seventh fairway, with club professional Gavin Vearing forced to shut the hole down for an hour.
The second followed closely behind landing on the 10th hole.
Mr Vearing admitted it came as quite the surprise.
